Lowe-Martin is committed to sustainable environmental stewardship to protect our environment and our economy. Our overreaching sustainability goal is to reduce the environmental footprint of our operations, drive change in our industry, and contribute to a reduction of the environmental footprint of our customers. We believe that this commitment has and will continue to enhance the economic success of our operations and will allow us to continue to deliver benefits for all stakeholders. Our key approach is the consideration and engagement of our ownership, customers, employees, suppliers and the communities in which we conduct business and raise our families.
The five fundamental elements of our environmental sustainability strategy are Leadership, Resource Stewardship, Risk Management, Verification and Regulatory Compliance on key environmental issues. We believe that the priority areas of focus in which we can have the greatest impact include Climate Change, Sustainable Forestry, Resource Management and Waste Management. Our progress in these areas is demonstrated in our Key Sustainability Fact Sheet and Sustainability Report.
Lowe-Martin has incorporated the latest in data processing, digital imaging and finishing technologies to offer full-service, single-source, direct mail capabilities. For all classes of US and Canadian mail, we execute your direct mail programs in a secure environment, in compliance with PIPEDA. Through our specialty finishing division, we also offer a broad range of innovative finishing services in support of our direct mail product offering. From self-mailer production through to tipping, folding and gluing, read and write and video matching applications.
Our world is going digital. Lowe-Martin integrated digital technologies as part of its standard product offering in the early 90's making us one of the print-on-demand (POD) pioneers in our served markets. Since then, while staying at the forefront of printing technology, we have integrated the latest in workflow management tools to consistently deliver on the key success factors for short-run digital printing: price, quality, and speed of execution. In support of both static and variable digital printing (VDP) applications, we have also assembled all of the finishing components required to make us one of the market leaders in POD and VDP applications.
Large format digital (LFD) printing is currently the fastest growing segment of the print market. Not surprisingly, we are pursuing this as a significant target market and growth area for Lowe-Martin. Taking advantage of the latest UV flatbed printing technologies, we can now deliver high-quality print on just about any material available - from rigid substrates to window cling. And we can finish it with professional digital die-cutting, mounting, laminating, and specialty finishing. Our broad finishing capabilities allow us to create 3D displays, razor sharp cut-outs and stunning POP displays. Through our expansion of services in this area, we are a key supplier to consumer goods and retail companies across Canada.
Lowe-Martin is equipped with a variety of press configurations that provide customers with print options up to 10 colours, including a roll-to-sheet configuration. We provide single pass solutions with our perfecting presses. At Lowe-Martin we enhance the printed press sheet with in-line aqueous coating and UV coatings. While the scope of our printing capabilities has expanded to include large format digital and variable digital print, Lowe-Martin's sheet-fed capabilities remain top-of-mind in our investment decisions. Our recent acquisition of a six-colour Komori 40-inch printing press is a testament to this fact. This new Hybrid UV press incorporates all of the advantages of modern press designs but also delivers eco-friendly benefits such as reduced power consumption and intelligent automation; capabilities designed to dramatically reduce waste, ink consumption and make-ready time allowing us to deliver high-quality printing at the lowest possible cost.
As we expanded our digital product offering we quickly realized that the internet offered the best opportunity to reduce administrative costs and drive efficiencies. Our advanced web solutions are specifically designed to meet the pre and post ordering process required to deliver print-on-demand applications. Our platforms are built on secure servers using a wide range of off-the-shelf software as well as custom-built web storefronts tailored to the specific requirements of our clients. These tools allow us to deliver a high level of automation throughout the manufacturing process in support of our fulfillment and print-on-demand applications.
State-of-the-art pre-media services is the starting point for all successful print operations. Lowe-Martin offers end-to-end pre-media solutions in a fully integrated and flexible digital infrastructure to meet the increasing demand for fast and accurate pre-press services. Our talented designers are pleased to augment, support and enhance your work, by providing a full range of pre-press services. We have the expertise to handle small, simple edits through to specialized high-level design with technical support to produce a perfectly finished piece. We offer this range of services under the umbrella of a G7 certification to ensure the best possible results across all of our manufacturing platforms.
Today's marketing is centred on both impact and results. Providing the right message at the right time, in a format that best appeals to the consumer is undeniably important. Whether you are designing a fully personalized self-mailer or a complex point-of-purchase display, our team of business professionals is there to support you through every step of the physical design process.
From 3D display design through the creation of complex finishing die-lines our team has developed the tools to enhance your creative output and achieve effective marketing campaigns. Our innovative engineering process permits us to manufacture complex projects in the most efficient and cost-effective manner and that just simply makes sense.
Since 2007, Lowe-Martin has established itself as a major supplier of commemorative and definitive stamps, in both gummed and self-adhesive formats, to Canada and over 50 European, African, Asian and Caribbean countries.
Our Commemorative products include gummed stamp panes, sheetlets and souvenir sheets, first day covers, as well as self-adhesive sheets and folded booklets, which are printed on our newly installed 10 colour sheet-fed presses. We also produce small and large format Definitive Coils on our 7 colour web press, from small coils of 50 stamps up to rolls of 5,000 stamps.
On all of our postal products, we use high-resolution 10-micron stochastic screening. This represents the finest image being produced for any philatelic community in the world, and is the closest process possible to representing photographic quality.

We also produce Personalized Postage for a number of administrations using our state of the art Digital equipment.
Lowe-Martin invests a significant amount of time and effort in planning, designing, printing and producing your project, but we don't stop there. While your job is being printed, our team is hard at work setting up the steps required to complete the finishing process. Time is money and we do our very best to save you both. As soon as you entrust us with your order, a Print Production Specialist is assigned to your project and oversees every step of the process, from pre-media to shipping. Lowe-Martin has one of the largest in-house bindery operations found in traditional print shops anywhere in Canada. Our sophisticated bindery offers a wide range of binding and finishing services to support both our print-on-demand and traditional print product offerings.
Lowe-Martin currently operates a number of web stores requiring fulfillment and kitting services. Daily, we receive, pack, and fulfill orders placed on-line through our web storefronts. All of these orders are tracked throughout the manufacturing process in a real-time environment. Our systems will track orders, inventory levels, and print-on-demand components through on-line tools available to all system administrators.
On a daily basis we kit and fulfill hundreds of orders just-in-time, helping our customers better manage their print spend through on-demand fulfillment. Furthermore, our rapid expansion into large format digital requires assembly and distribution of hundreds of point-of-purchase (POP) kits every week. To support this growing component of our product offering we now operate a 60,000 square foot facility exclusively for kitting and fulfillment.
